Telling him you didn't change his computer is the truth. Telling him the change went in at the router level because Tom's boss thought he was surfing porn would be the whole truth.

Are you saying you think he should have told him he changed the router?

I'm not a lawyer, but I to watch law shows. It seems to me they want you to tell the truth, but not volunteer anything.

I would think it would be the bosses place to tell him if he wanted him to know.

I would hope I would have been able to think fast enough to say something like "Why? Are you having trouble getting on to any particular site?"

I don't know the relationship, but I wouldn't think it would be the consultants place to answer the employees question with the "whole truth".
